Schrödinger operates responsibly wherever we do business, while maintaining environments that provide inspiration and comfort for employees. Our environmental footprint centers primarily on the energy we use to run our computational software, power our offices, and engage in business travel.
As we grow, we are committed to building out future office and lab space in an environmentally sound manner, maintaining our focus on LEED standards and employee wellness. We also intend to increase monitoring and measurement of our carbon footprint, including accounting for third-party services such as data centers. To help guide our approach, we’re in the process of establishing our baseline and formalizing policies and processes focused on minimizing our environmental footprint.
Additionally, the work of our team helps to protect the planet through the discovery of new and better materials solutions that help reduce energy use, cut carbon emissions, and curtail waste by drastically reducing the volume of chemical compounds needed to discover new drugs, materials, and chemical solutions.
